May 26, 2017
The annual application period for the court's CJA Appellate Panels runs from June 1, 2017, to September 1, 2017. Attorneys with a physical office in the circuit who have experience in federal criminal law and appellate procedure are invited to apply for panel membership using the CJA Appellate Panel Application. Applications are reviewed by the CJA Panel Committee, and the committee makes its final recommendations to the court of appeals each fall after completing its review of the applications. For in-circuit members whose terms have expired, reapplication can be made by an CJA Appellate Panel Renewal Application within 12 months of expiration of your term.
